A craftworker carved this grasshopper from wood in Oaxaca, southern Mexico. Male grasshoppers ‘sing’ by rubbing their back legs against their front wings. The tough front wings also protect the back wings, which are used for flying.
One of the hills around Mexico City is called Chapultepec, or Grasshopper Hill, because in the rainy season grasshoppers are known to swarm there.
A grasshopper can leap 20 times its own body length.
